Jonathan, I think you said it best from the start - it's impossible for 
this year's hikers to know to what extent the lower Gila route may or 
may not have been affected. Only a "repeat offender" would be able to 
offer any real perspective on this situation. Suffice it to say, the 
trail hasn't been in great shape for years, and didn't really exist in 
the river's immediate flood plain anyway. So there was always a 
"bushwhack" component to the walk, along with the many river fords. (The 
novelty of fording does wear off after a few dozen, Gottago speaks truly!)
